Children & Youth

We believe the hallmark of American democracy is the common school, a public school that is free of cost and fully accessible to every child who lives in the United States of America, and that it, therefore, deserves the very best leadership and support we can give to it.

We believe that every child has the right to attend public schools where they feel safe, welcomed, represented, understood, included, and encouraged to thrive academically and socially, inclusive of race, ethnicity, geographic location, housing or economic status, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, nationality, immigration status, family connections, or language.
